Kenny K - #55 Fun in the Sun

Theme of Challenge #55 at Kenny K - Fun in the sun
Prize & Sponsor -$15 Gift certificate from Whimsy Stamps!

Yep, I am sure you have come across this particular image before but she is just so perfect for a summery card, chillin' with her ice cream!  She is called 'Troublemaker', though possibly not living up to her name whilst clutching her melting ice. Now, I am sure it was the dripping ice cream that did it, but I made a card with a little tot eating her cornet earlier this year. It just struck me she could be the same girl but a few years older! Of course, once that had entered my head that was all I could think of so I ran with the idea rather than fighting it, using the same colour palette etc. but upgrading it all for an older gal with a little more street-cred.

I coloured her with Promarkers, but paper pieced her hoodie with a re-coloured digi paper from Create & Craft and then did the same for the mesh bits of her trainers. I wish I looked as good as she does! Oh to be young & carefree eh! LOL. Well, back to the card & the sun (which is hopefully making the whole scene hot enough to melt the ice cream if not to get her out of a hoodie & into a sleeveless top! LOL), is punched out of vellum from Papermania with a circular Fiskars' punch.

I have this fresh faced girl with the amazing hypnotic eyes ambling along the (Promarker-ed) beach next to the sea, though contained in a rectangle like that maybe it should be a swimming pool. LOL. I just love all those shades of blue. I added my charm sun, suspended over the water as it is representing the sun reflecting off the rippling waves. Guess I have had my 'arty' head on today. LOL.

For the inside of the card I created something of a regular insert, though layering a background up to complement the front of the card & give it a hot kind of glow. I gave the sentiment a white hot sun circle idea, adding a few words of my own on the PC before adding wording from Raindrop Echo Designs.

Hope you can join in with our 'fun in the sun' challenge this week & and don't forget, if you want a chance to win the fab prize from Whimsy Stamps to make sure you use a KennyK image when you play along with us.
